Ryan originally majored in psychology and minored in business management at Ohio State University before being selected by the Steelers in the first round of the 2014 draft, but now he is hoping to finish his degree by taking classes three days a week at Pitt and hopefully earn his master's degree in business.

It was reported on Steelers.com, Ryan said, "I always wanted to go back to school, even before I got hurt. It has always been important to me. I feel like I never accomplished something I always told myself I would. I want my kids to have better opportunities than me. I know it's going to be a stepping stone for them and myself, to show them I have my degree."

Ryan's first day of school was also the first day of pre-kindergarten for his oldest son, Ryan Jr. How sweet!

Congrats Ryan and good luck!

We all can't wait to go to your graduation! The entire city of Pittsburgh is invited right?
